Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's

Research In Motion boldy goes nowhere new with its latest BlackBerry, the 9650 Bold. It's solid and capable, but fails to break any new ground. For boring suits, it suits just fine.

Research In Motion has taken the 9630 Tour, added Wi-Fi and a touchpad, and re-christened it the 9650 Bold. The "Bold" name has historically been reserved for RIM's top-of-the-line BlackBerries. This compact, QWERTY-toting smartphone represents the best that RIM has to offer, though its best often doesn't match up with the competition. It's an email machine, to be sure, but RIM's operating system is getting old and we know the next revision is coming soon. Is the 9650 worth taking a chance?

"RIM's operating system is old"


If it ain't broke, then why "fix" it?
Apple is doing a lot to drive the market and consumer expectations. Google, Motorola, HTC and the carriers are right behind Apple, doing the same. A lot of people now want phones with slick touch interfaces that run cool new apps. That's reality.
